Hi there
I have an issue concerning syncing playlists to phones:
When a file appears on two or more lists, this file will only be synced once I suppose?
I couldn't find this in the how tos but I'm sure this is the way it must be...

Yes, my experience is that if the same track appears on more than one playlist, the track file is only copied once.
Download the latest MusicBee v3.5 patch from here.
Unzip into your MusicBee directory and overwrite existing files.

The only exception would be if each playlist is synced to its own folder (per settings).
